The World's Greatest Music
Everything you need to know about Giuseppe Verdi - the greatest Italian opera composer of the 19th century. Still performed all around the world, Verdi's works are among the greatest hits of the past 150 years.
Between 1855 and 1867, Verdi was unstoppable. There was a great outpouring of operas, among them Un ballo in maschera (1859), La forza del destino (commissioned by the Imperial Theatre of Saint Petersburg for 1861 but not performed until 1862), and a revised version of Macbeth (1865). The pictured artwork shows Luciano Pavarotti in a 1980 production of Un ballo in maschera.
